Users are accessing SAP in more dynamic ways - from a variety of networks, locations, and devices. In response, SAP teams realize their existing (role-based) controls do not accommodate these dynamic attributes, and as a result, cannot fully mitigate risk.
The context of access matters when controlling risk. However, preventing policy violations where “context” is the determining factor quickly becomes challenging when you’re relying on static roles and permissions.
Join the SAP security experts at Appsian on May 27th and learn how fine-grained, dynamic authorization can help you better align your SAP security controls with real-world risk and strengthen your GRC strategies.
Enabling PeopleSoft identity and access management by single sign-on is a universally accepted best practice. However, without native SAML support, integrating an enterprise SSO (OKTA, Azure, Ping Identity, etc.) with PeopleSoft is not possible. This dilemma has forced many organizations to scope extensive custom development projects that have limited to no success, long-term.
Fortunately, Appsian has developed the native SAML connector that can seamlessly be installed in the PeopleSoft webserver to enable SSO natively, without the use of customizations or additional servers. Join us as we demonstrate this critically important solution.
Traditional access controls are no longer sufficient to protect your sensitive ERP data. From expanding data privacy mandates to the growth of user-centric threats – the focus is now on your data (and how your users interact with it). Data masking, a key tactic used to control the exposure of sensitive information, has unfortunately had a limited presence in SAP ERP applications. Masking capabilities are absent out-of-the-box, and alternative solutions can be prohibitively complex to implement or may hinder usability with static policy.
Organizations are looking to break down the silos in the authorization process. Multiple functions, multiple applications, and antiquated (manual) approval processes typically create security and compliance challenges as new authorizations are created. Why? Because essential functions like IAM/governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) are not combined to verify that access is being granted correctly. To make matters worse, existing authorization processes are manual, time-consuming, and error-prone.
Optimizing the authorization process is essential for managing the risk of policy violations – and organizations must streamline and automate this process as much as possible. This can only be done using a single platform that is providing dynamic identity access management, while fully automating the entire authorization lifecycle: request, risk assessment, usage analysis, provisioning/de-provisioning, and user activity monitoring.
Only then will an organization be equipped to effectively and efficiently manage risk in a dynamic access environment.
